In his inimitable style, Myhra looks at the origins of the project, detailing the ground-breaking work of Heinkel and his engineers, then reviews the preliminary work on the He R with its triumphs and accidents, including the death of test pilot Gerhard Reins.

Documentation Dispels Speculation, Table I. The original flight-test data, scientifically recorded, analyzed and documented, from the world's first piloted airplane flight beyond the so-called "sound-barrier" has been presented and discussed in this book.
The conclusive evidence of this event, from the raw recorded data to the final numerical data, has been clearly presented. Kempel is to debunk this fictitious theory and to explain rationally why the X-1 should remain enthroned as the first manned aircraft to break the sound barrier.
Work on this book began more than a decade ago but various problems postponed its publication until The story of the Bristol T, Britain's stainless steel research aircraft, has never been told in such riveting details.
